Newborn baby rescued alive from toilet pipe after being flushed away by parents

A new born Chinese baby was rescued by firefighters from a toilet pipe after being flushed down the toilet by his parents. The 2-day old baby was stuck in the sewage pipe directly beneath a toilet commode in a residential building in Jinhua in the wealthy coastal province of Zhejiang on Saturday afternoon, Chinese State TV reports

Firefighters received a call from residents of a block of flats saying they heard the sound of a baby crying and believed a baby was stuck in the pipe. When firefighters got there, they removed the pipe and took it to a nearby hospital, where doctors carefully cut around it to rescue the baby boy inside.

The baby, whose placenta was still attached, is believed to have been stuck in the pipe for hours. Unbelievably, he survived the ordeal. He is now in care and said to be in stable condition. The police are said to be looking for his parents. God be praised.

Four foreign nationals, suspected to have hailed from Middle East, were arrested in Kano by the Joint Task Force in the Bompai area of Kano on Wednesday.

Owner of the complex, where the weapons were impounded, simply identified as a Lebanese national, was arrested by military personnel.

Security sources disclosed that items recovered from the extensive operation included 40 air-to-surface missiles, 50 cluster bombs, 200 rocket-propel launchers, eight AK-47 rifles and 200 military hand grenades.

The “weapons of war” were said to have been evacuated to the headquarters of the 3rd Motorised Brigade of the Nigerian Army, Kano, alongside the foreign nationals.

Woman Delivers Her Baby After Being "Pregnant" For Two Years (PICTURED)

When Mrs. Prisca Ashiegbu struggled with her husband and finally got pregnant after seven years of fervent prayers to God for the fruit of the womb, she never imagined that she would have to go through so much sufferings and pain, waiting another two years before she eventually "pushed" the baby out.

Below is the story of this beautiful woman who got her first baby after nine years...
The nine years of childless marriage to her husband, Henry, was rough but the agaony was forgotten when she was delivered of her “miracle baby” on February 2, 2013.Married in January 2004, the couple who hail from Abazu village in Imo State was not so anxious about having a child in the first year of the marriage. However, they stated their journey of praying and waiting on God by the second year.

For many years, they went from one hospital to another searching for a solution to their childlessness and it was during one of such hospital visits that a scan revealed that Prisca had fibroid.

The doctors said the only solution was for Prisca to undergo surgery but the stories the couple heard about having surgery to remove fibroid didn’t encourage them to go on with the treatment.

“I have always had this phobia of going for surgery especially when it concerns fibroid. I have heard a lot of stories and the stories were not good. Many women had lost their lives in the process and we didn’t know where to go and who to trust. Some other stories we heard were that if one does not conceive within three months after removing the fibroid, it will grow back. I didn’t want my wife to go for the surgery because I had already made up my mind that I’ll rather remain childless than lose my wife to the ailment,” Henry, the husband said.

God is great!

Baba Suwe Loses N25 Million Award At The Court of Appeal

A panel of Court of Appeal judges in Lagos today set aside the N25 million compensatory damages earlier awarded Lagos comedian, Babatunde Omidina " Baba Suwe " over a prolonged detention by the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency (NDLEA) last year.

In the ruling, the Court of Appeal re-affirmed the right of the NDLEA to investigate, arrest, detain and prosecute drug suspects as long as the agency acts within the law.

The court said the NDLEA had not violated Mr. Omidina's rights because it sought and got court orders from the federal high court to keep him in custody after the arrested him on the suspicion that he had ingested hard drugs.

The Court of Appeal came down heavily on the Lagos High court judge that awarded the damages against the NDLEA, describing the decision as oppressive and burdensome to an agency of government carrying out its statutory duties.

Baba Suwe's attorneys led by civil rights activist, Bamidele Aturu, has vowed to take the matter before the Supreme Court.

Stop Killing Nollywood With Tribalism - Actress Halima Abubakar Cries Out

One actress who really struggled for several years in Nollywood before she eventually got her big break is Halima Abubakar. She saw the challenges, faced them and eventually conquered.

But she said it no longer easy for up and coming actresses who are gifted but are not being allowed to prove themselves in the industry due to the high level tribalism of the Igbos who control the industry and are now making themselves lord over others. See her complains below...

“I have experienced tribalism, I know people would say it is a lie, but that is the truth. Why have those from a particular group not reached out to people who are not specifically from their areas?

“I have worked with a lot of Igbos, my marketer is Igbo, I have worked with a lot of them and I know those I have not worked with, I have not seen the right roles for me yet, but I believe they will come.

"But how about others, who are independently shooting movies, does that mean those are the only set of actors in Nollywood? I am not saying they should give me roles, but there are people who want to seefresh faces. We need to give others opportunity to showcase their talents.

“I am saying, stop tribalism and bring everyone under the umbrella of AGN,” Halima insisted.

Siblings Arrested For Stealing N43m From Brother-in-law

The Lagos State Police Command has arrested four brothers for allegedly stealing N43m from their brother-in-law, Umeagudosi Nnama, in Ikeja area of the state.

According to the police, the suspects, Obinna Okezie, Mike Okezie, Chibuzor Okezie and Matthew Okezie connived with one Okechukwu Uzoma, who is an employee of the victim, to rob him of the money.

PUNCH Metro learnt that Nnama owns a bureau de change at the Murtala Muhammed Airport. The suspects were said to be employees of the victim as well.

According to sources, the suspects on May 1,2013, went to the victim’s office and deceived the employee on duty, Desmond Ameife, into giving them the money on the pretext of giving it to a customer.

A police source said, “Nnama just lost his wife and he has not even buried her yet. The brothers conspired among themselves to rob Nnama, who is also their boss.

“Nnama’s company, PNnama Enterprise serves as a middleman between Chinese manufacturers and Nigerian traders. The company helps traders to send money to Chinese manufacturers. On May 1, the brothers told Ameife to give them $200,000 and N11m (N43m) saying they wanted to give the money to a customer.

“The suspects then took the money and ran away.”

It was learnt that the suspects were traced to Satellite area of FESTAC after the matter was reported at Area E Command.

Our correspondent learnt that the Area Commander, Damian Okoro, sent a team of detectives to the scene and arrested the suspects who were sharing their loot at the time.

“On May 3, just two days after the robbery, the suspects were arrested at an apartment of one of their relatives where they were sharing the money. The whole money was fully recovered, “he said.

A police source told our correspondent that the brothers had allegedly attempted to steal N20m from the victim prior to the robbery.

“Nnama said in his statement that the brothers had told him some days before the robbery that their mother had been kidnapped and they needed N20m to pay ransom. This shows that the brothers had been conspiring for quite some time,” he said.

The spokesperson for the state police command, Ngozi Braide, said she had no information on the case.

Nine Nigerians Arrested For Fraud In Malaysia

Police in Malaysia have arrested nine Nigerians suspected of having cheated a beautician of an estimated $427,000, Borneo Post online has reported.

According to Commercial Crime Investigation Department head Supt Mohd Firdaus Abdullah, all suspects stationed at the country’s capital were arrested last Wednesday, after two local suspects in Kuching were released on bail following an interrogation.

“We traced these foreigners through the Internet Protocol Address provided by one of the local suspects,” he said when contacted yesterday.

Eight of the foreign suspects were students and one a businessman, aged 22 to 31.

They are placed under remand until May 29 to facilitate investigation.
A team from state police headquarters was assigned to go to Kuala Lumpur to investigate.

The beautician, in her early 30s, is single. She lodged a police report after realising that she had been conned several times since early this year.
The victim said she was conned of an estimated RM1.3 million($427,000) that involved seven banks, 16 accounts and 40 transactions in more than three months.

Firdaus advised the public, especially women, not to be taken in by their online contacts to avoid being victims of cyber crime.

He hoped this case would be a lesson to those making friends online.

“We regret that this kind of case is still happening. We have given lots of advice and publicity, yet people still fall for these scams,” he said.

The swindlers used social network connection like Facebook, e-mail and chat room to establish friendship before sending parcels they claim to be presents.
They would say the parcels contained valuables and the victims had to make several payments to Customs and ‘agents’ to claim their ‘gifts’ as the parcels had been ‘confiscated’ by Customs Malaysia.

Declare State Of Emergency On Corruption - Nnamani To Jonathan

ABUJA—FORMER Senate President, Ken Nnamani, yesterday, called on President Goodluck Jonathan to declare a state of emergency on corruption, if that will address the problem.

He also said if corruption, which is one of Nigeria’s major problems must be nipped in the bud, especially as it affected award of contracts, attention must be paid to Public Private Partnership, PPP.

Speaking when he appeared before the Senator Ayogu Eze-led Senate Committee on Works, Senator Nnamani noted that $8 trillion was currently what the private sector in the world was controlling, adding that it was only the private sector that ccould control corruption.

According to him, it is not business as usual in the private sector, as private investors monitor their businesses.

He added that First Bank Plc, a private sector driven organisation, had a balance sheet that was more than the nation’s budget.

Nnamani was at the Senate with other designated members of the governing board of the Infrastructure Concession and Regulatory Commission, ICRC. The former Senate President is the chairman of the board of ICRC.

The former Senate President, who told the senators that he was coming to the National Assembly for the first time since 2007, was, however, not asked any question by the senators, in line with the National Assembly’s procedures of asking former lawmakers to simply take a bow and go.

Earlier, Chairman of the Committee, Senator Ayogu Eze, PDP, Enugu, said it was not the intention of the Senate to allow Nnamani stay for more than two minutes, adding that the Senate was contemplating whether to invite him and take a bow.

He added that Nnamani was not summoned, but expected to have a handshake with the senators and take a bow.

Other members of the Board are Barrister Aminu Dikko; Mrs Comfort Ken Saro Wiwa; Engr. Janet Febisola Adeyemi; Mrs Yabawa Wabi; Musa Elayo and Barrister A.U. Kanu.

Customs Officer Nabbed For Ferrying Arms For Boko Haram

A high ranking customs officer allegedly aided the importations of weapons for Boko Haram.

Soldiers have arrested a serving senior official of the Nigeria Customs Service in Maiduguri, the Borno State capital for allegedly assisting Boko Haram insurgents to import arms into the country, both security and non-military sources revealed to PREMIUM TIMES.

The officer, who is a native of one of the states in the volatile Northeast Nigeria, found himself in trouble when soldiers intercepted a vehicle cleared to enter the country through a border post under his command.

Some military sources who confirmed the incident to reporters in Maiduguri said the Customs officer was exposed when the driver of the truck carrying the illegal arms mentioned his name ‘as the Oga that allowed him to enter the country with the arms’.

The sources said the customs officer was also linked with several arms importation, an act that probably made him very rich, to buy his numerous landed property and posh cars.

The news of the incident, which had been downplayed by the security agencies in Maiduguri, however, became the talk of the town after it broke open this week.

A Borno civil servant told Journalists at the Government House, Maiduguri, that government officials know about the arrest of the officer.

“It is no longer a hidden news that he was arrested in connection with helping Boko Haram to bring in arms. A security source also told me that the senior officer manned the border post each time the truck conveying arms was about coming into Maiduguri. He would simply tell his boys to let it pass that it has been cleared from above,” said the civil servant who did not want his name published for security reasons.

Sources also said several military uniforms and guns were also recovered from the Maiduguri home of the arrested customs officer after a team of soldiers visited the building last week.

Journalists could not get across to the spokesmen of the various security outfits in Maiduguri, including the JTF spokesman, Sagir Musa, due to the grounding of telecommunication network which has lasted for almost two weeks since the emergency rule declaration.
